It took me a long time today to make this card..I think my mojo is still on a holiday weekend. It went through about 5 different morphs...different background pieces, different main image..geez! I finally went with this cuz I am done fooling around with it. I do really like these colors...Thanks for looking!

First of all, Polly, GORGEOUS piercing! Love your little doll-like figure offering her thanks with a beautiful delicate die cut behind her. Your paper lace and German scrap bow are so in keeping with your vintage feeling.

(((((here's to that mojo comin' back))))). I can totally relate. I have to say when I saw your little girl, I thought, 'why so grim'!
But then those vintage images were fashioned at a time when serious ruled the day. I do love all the details on the dress and then your dessert option is AMAZING!
Well done in spite of the mojo!!!

I know how you feel, Polly, sometimes I mess around with a card until I nearly get sick of it - but this turned out fab - love, love, love that piercing and the cute vintage girl...pretty use of die-cuts too!

Polly, we all struggle with days just like yours, so don't feel all alone! I've picked out a card from a FS or Queen to case, got all my items ready to create, and then just lost my drive to make the card! Now that's pretty sad (especially wasting all that time). If it's not there, it's not there.... I do like what you came up with here. That little bow, the piercing and the flowery flourish really make this little lady stand out so nicely~
